Manchester City are targeting two Premier League stars after their move for Lucas Paqueta became a non-starter.
Eberechi Eze has reportedly been on City’s radar for the last six months due to his stunning displays for Crystal Palace.
A player who can play in central midfield or from either flank, the Eagles could demand more than £70million for the England international who bagged 10 goals and four assists for Palace last term.
Matheus Nunes is also a target, according to The Athletic.
The Portuguese star is highly rated despite scoring just once in 34 games for Wolves last term.
The 24-year-old was a transfer target for Liverpool before moving to Molineux, with City keen to make the most of the midlands-based side’s financial predicament in the knowledge that Gary O’Neil’s side could find it hard to turn down a substantial offer.
talkSPORT understands City are yet to make a bid and Wolves, who are desperate to keep Nunes, have slapped at £60m price tag on the midfielder.
Pep Guardiola’s search for a midfielder has stepped up since learning that Kevin De Bruyne faces up to four months on the sidelines.
City had targeted £85million-rated West Ham star Paqueta, however allegations of suspicious betting activity means that the treble-winners have cooled their interest.
